    The book is fairly well written, and starts off well. But, like all coding books that use the we will be building a project from scratch, and adding on to it each chapter, it veers off the path. All of a sudden, there are.cs files to copy in to the project, to advance the project along. I achieved solutions in far different methods than the author (stackpanel vs grid). In fact, at one point after going over all of the layout methods, and saying they should be used, one solution used a fixed position layout (with the hardly mentioned DataGrid), which I thought was contradictory to the advice in earlier chapters. MVVM does not make an appearance until 75% of the way through the book.

    I have been developing WinForms apps for many years, but find myself needing to make the jump to WPF. This book will give you the basics to make that leap. Use a follow up reference book, such as

    This is a very lean book that gives you just enough information to get a handle on using WPF without any extraneous fluff. I'm an experienced embedded C developer, but being new to C# and WPF I've been frustrated by a lack of concise but *complete* introductions to using WPF effectively.

    This book has definitely given me a better handle on the subject, but it's a bit *too* lean, especially when it comes to the MVVM design pattern, which first appears on page 132 out of 160. This book would have been much useful if it were twice as long, with some time spent on the pros and cons of different WPF techniques for different use cases and a bit explanation of some of the concepts. The MVVM section also could stand to be expanded. As it is, it gives a minimal look at setting up a View and connecting it to a ViewModel, but doesn't give any guidance on organizing the ViewModel Model relationship or how to handle the presentation of complex models.

    Ultimately, I think the $10 price for the ebook is quite fair, and it is quite useful as a basic introduction to WPF, but there are other, heftier books on WPF that are probably useful in the long run. To be fair, the author basically says as much in the description of the book, but the fact that MVVM, which is half of the title, only gets about 1/8th of the book is pretty disappointing.

    I really liked this book. Having some experience with XML an C# I was not sure of many XAML rules. I have read the book in 3 days and will read it again, to make sure everything transferred from the book to the brain. The author explains the essential and most useful XAML tools and explains well. I have also really liked the author mentioning methods. But my first attempt with methods failed, and I could not figure out why. I have posted the problem on StackOverflow but got no reply. I emailed the author, his reply was quick and to the point, Now my method works and I intend to stick with methods rather than with events or commands.
    I will definitely by a new book from the author if one appears in the same format. I really hate those 700 1200 page computer books.

    This was a very useful book for me I am a Project Manager and I need to do some coding from time to time. I needed to quickly grasp C#, WPF and MVVM (I have background in other programming languages including VB.NET). This book was exactly what I was looking for very nice and well explained introduction to these topics.
    If you are an elite programmer then this will not be your cup of tea but for my case it was ideal.
    The only suggestions I would have is for the author to ask someone to proof read the text to correct the occasional English mistakes. Also I would actually liked to have a little details on some topic but of course it's a judgement call on the author's side, how brief or lengthy he wants his books to be.
    All in all, solid 5 stars.

    Perfect book that moves at a moderately fast pace that gets any C# developer who is familiar with XML tags to learn GUI design using XAML. I love the explanations and the parts that requires you to code pages for practice. This book is perfect for learning grids and how they size and resize in apps that you will create. The sections that teach binding and styling control templates was so unbelievably helpful to me. All this information in addition to much .
    I think the section on MVVM is sort of confusing but I think if I reread it multiple times and practice several times over it should get me up to speed. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn how to develop beautiful WPF applications!!! If you are proficient with C# and understand any HTML or XML then this book should be readable at quite a quick pace!

    I bought this book as an introduction to the WPF MVVM pattern. The book starts by saying this is not an introduction to WPF and it is assumed the reader knows about WPF. Great, I thought, we're going to get stuck into MVVM and it's application to WPF solutions. Wrong!
    The book is thin, at just 162 pages. Sadly, 129 of those pages take you through WPF as if you knew pretty much nothing about WPF. Just 33 pages are spent on MVVM.
    Despite the long discussion of WPF, if you want to learn WPF this is definitely not the book to choose.
    And if, as I did, you want to learn MVVM, this does little than give you the most basic of examples. And then the book ends. Overall, a bit disappointing.

    This book is probably a good introduction to xaml and maybe even C# in general, however this book is billed as Learn WPF MVVM. The MVVM section is why I purchased this, on the internet there seems to be a variety of implementations of MVVM so I was hoping this book would provide good information. However the MVVM implementation was not really fully explained. Even the example code in the website was not ideal, no comments in sight to help explain to someone learning MVVM what the author was doing.

    There is good stuff on XAML in this book, but if you are only looking to learn WPF MVVM then this book doesn't offer enough detail.

    Due to its shallow content, this book is over priced. The poor standard of English grammar and punctuation in this book is frequently distracting and sometimes leads to confusion. Despite these shortcomings, the book does cover XAML basics and is useful for that.

    A good introduction to WPF development. M. Weil uses a demonstrative approach followed by 'Now you do it!'. His writing style is easy to read. Although my primary goal was a primer on WPF, his introduction to MVVM is a bonus. The book is brief (159 pages) and quickly consumed, unlike some of the drier and deeper reference books. This book provides a good counterfoil to those heavyweight references.

    This book does not fulfill the promise of its title.

    The sections on general use of WPF are ok but I bought this book to learn about MVVM and the coverage of this is very brief. I do not recommend this as a resource for MVVM.

Youre a developer who knows nothing to WPF Which is fine except that you need to start coding your next application using WPF and the MVVM pattern Dont worry I have you covered Ive been training hundreds of developers like you during 15. I have been developing WinForms apps for many years but find myself needing to make the jump to WPF This book will give you the basics to make that leap Use a follow up reference book such as
